Carpal tunnel syndrome - Haemorrhage Factor

Haemorrhage means bleeding.

Haemorrhage involving the carpal tunnel is not common but may result from trauma, coagulation disorders such as haemophilia, disorders such as acute myeloid leukaemia or synovitis of the wrist or spontaneous bleeding as a result of anticoagulant therapy such as warfarin.

If the veteran had suffered from haemorrhage involving the carpal tunnel, this history would have been identified by the doctor who diagnosed carpal tunnel syndrome.
